Hi, sorry for frequent posting but this is something that has vexed me

localhost being the hostname sucks. Now, I can goto a terminal and do
"hostname mynewhostname" as root and it changes it. For that session. As
soon as I reboot its back to localhost!!!! Why? How can I change it? I know
in U/Kubuntu you set it during the install, and it actually sticks but thats
the only distro so far that I've seen!!!
